  1. Accessing video files on Server 2012R2 file server


    Xbox 360

    Server 2012R2 DataCenter

    I use the server 2012 for my home business and it also controls the home network with tablets, PCs and the Xbox. Can the Xbox access the video & audio files on the server? That is where I store pictures, media player fields & video files.

    Thanks

    :)

  2. Media Center extender installed and connected, cannot see mapped drives on PC where the content resides

    Here is my question, I load software on a win 8.1 system and add folders that are mapped to a Server 2102R2 file server. The XBOX can see them how? Do I add an app to the XBOX? Should I install on the 2012R2 server box instead since that is where the folders
    reside?

    Thanks for your help

    Alright, I've looked high and low for an answer to this and can't seem to find it.

    I currently have a network attached file server with music/videos/etc. on it. I use Windows shares on it so that it is accessible to all computers in the house. The XBox 360 has no problem finding the server with the System Video Player and playing the videos I have there. Will the XBox One continue that functionality? Will the PS4 be able to do this?

    I'm pretty sure pictures and video's don't save in a file on your HDD or MU. You only have 6 file share spots for this reason------>they are saved via online servers. You can upload your file shares to youtube but that's about it.

    I'm not sure I want this. What happens if the server is down? You won't be able to access your save files?

    It is storage space on a server out there on the Interwebs (in this case, Microsoft's servers) which you can store files on and access from anywhere.

    In theory your storage is in multiple places around the world but whether Microsoft does that with Xbox I'm not sure, it is more likely they just have storage servers in each territory.

    Play you mkv files on your xbox video player, it works!

    Guys Guys theres no need to use media center or installing separate media encoders and splitters, if you already have installed cccp it will have all video/audio encoders and splitters, from then upon installing ps3 media server the transcoding settings
    are all on default using cccp and then you start the server, go to your system video on your xbox and DO NOT use the raw files that you have shared with the server, you have to go into the folder on your xbox called #~transcode~# and there it will list each
    movie in folders and different encoded version of that movie in them. Example movie1.mkv folder/ [FFmpeg] (Audio: AAC/English) and [MEncoder Video] (Audio: AAC/English) and [VLC Video] (Audio: AAC/English) and finally the original unmodified file of the mkv.
